Older people I looked up to now just seem so lame
Their idealism is gone just like "the old days"
Burnt out and jaded, their old spirit faded
And I hope that in a few years I don't feel the same way

As we get older new faces appear every day
Do you have any idea of the direction of things to come?
Where are we gonna go from here?
Where are we gonna go?

I've always felt that music was something to believe in
I've always wanted more than just a "scene"
Like any other social group that you outgrow in time
Growing up and moving on and leaving it behind

But sometimes I feel like I'm wasting my time
Year after year towing the line
On this same scene and this same dream
Try to be pessimistic but I still can't change my mind

As we get older new faces appear every day
Do you have any idea of the direction of things to come?
Where are we gonna go from here?
Where are we gonna go?
